Google was going to be an interesting case of a large company
hiring people both from the embedded world and also the existing
Linux development community and then producing an embedded device
that was intended to compete with the very best existing
platforms. I had high hopes that this combination of factors would
result in the Linux community as a whole having a better idea what
the constraints and requirements for high-quality power management
in the embedded world were, rather than us ending up with another
pile of vendor code sitting on an FTP site somewhere in Taiwan that
implements its power management by passing tokenised dead mice
through a wormhole.
To a certain extent, my hopes were fulfilled. We got a git server in California.

We should stop using CPP, which is the outdated tech of the
sixties. We should go with the new wave of the seventies and use
this shiny new "C" language that's all the rage with features like
type checking and stuff.

If four heads have exploded (thus far) over one piece of code,
perhaps the blame doesn't lie with those heads.
